Pool CR8, light snow, 2016. Pool CR8 was an interesting case study for a biologist. A totally localised ecosystem home to a family of frogs, birds and a large variety of aquatic plants and insects, moreover a distinct seasonal cycle could emerge here, mostly based on the water level and foliage. Occasionally the water left would freeze over in winter, and we could punt a football around it. Sadly it doth giveth and taketh away.
